So as I stated - how long does linux have to be around for you to consider it non-suicidal and non-sad?

Sure projects come and go for numerous reasons. So what?

Libranet DID do something great, how does the leader of the project passing away unexpectedly make anything suicidal.

How is your sourceforge example suicidal or sad. It is perfect! If people are interested and it is the best solution then it likely will do well. If not then it can sit dormant until it is needed, or until someone is interested, or until someone uses it for a piece of another project.

I guess I just do not get your point. I don't understand what you are getting at. My only question is if this is so sad and suicidal shouldn't it be dead already? And not gaining in popularity?
